When I am extremley stressed & feel I can't take anymore, or when I have a heaviness on me- I praise God - & THAT HEAVINESS LEAVES ME. When we prasie God, he promises that the spirit of heaviness will leave and we will be refreshed & it's really true & works. Like prasing Him for a little while more than 5min, that's when I feel it leave.Praising God is a commandment. Sometimes we just need to take a break &rest also. Rely on God & he will keep you movin!
Is. 61:3 “To give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” The word “garment” in Hebrew shows praise as more than a piece of clothing casually thrown over the shoulders. It literally teaches us to “wrap or cover ourselves.” The garment of praise is to leave no openings through which hostile elements can penetrate. This garment of praise repels and replaces the heavy spirit. Like Paul and Silas in the prison in Acts 16, we must put on praise. We need to offer the Sacrifice of Praise when we don’t feel like it
